Mobile Dictation-Recorders Tradition Dictation/Transcription (TT) Method

In Traditional Dictation and Transcription, the traditional medical transcription process is made digital and uses speech recognition to do the typing. The old process was: Dictate patient encounters to a tape recorder – send the tape for transcription – receive paper drafts – make correction and the process repeats – this could take days or weeks to complete.

With Dragon Medical Practice Edition, Digital Recorders and Workflow Processes, we follow a similar path but with reduced effort and time. The new process is: Dictate to a digital recorder, the audio file is securely routed to Dragon Medical Practice Edition for speech recognition into text, a correctionist reviews the transcribed text and synchronized audio. By listening to what was said and seeing what was transcribed, the correctionist easily updates the doctor’s Dragon Medical Practice Edition user profile.

Uses for Traditional Dictation and Transcription using Dragon Medical Practice Edition:

  • Create text on the go that is transferred to am EMR system
  • Create Chart Notes using MS Word and Medical Templates that can be corrected and finalized at a later time.
  • Continue to create chart notes on the go without having to use the computer.

* Requires staff to correct drafts created by Dragon Medical Practice Edition
